Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

For Johnny Cash (The Man In Black)


You traveled the road,
a long road
but you got to where
you was going

The faces you have seen
the lives you have changed
through the music you have played

The train tracks and the prisons
was it all a sign
Merle Haggard said you changed his life

Your addiction was pulling you down
your faith was lifting you up
then a meeting of hearts
with your wife to be June
joined together to give you
a happy life

Your music and your faith
will live forever
in the hearts and minds
of God and the people

    I'm a big Johnny Cash fan. He was a real person as opposed to the corporate puppets that seek to pass as musicians and singers today. A fine poem Dave. (Report) Reply

And pays us but with earth and dust;
